National Student Employment Week

Each year colleges and universities across the country recognize the importance of the student work experience during National Student Employment Week. Student employment offers students career-enhancing opportunities, the ability to develop skills relevant in any career, and better preparation for the job market upon graduation. All supervisors are encouraged to take this opportunity during National Student Employment Week to thank their student employees and let them know that they are valued. We have included some tips for recognition. 

Student Employment is pleased to announce we are now accepting nominations for Student Employee of the Year! If you have a student employee or Federal Work Study worker who you feel goes above and beyond the call of duty, nominate them now at Student Employee of the Year.

Nominations must be received by close of business on February 9, 2018.
